BENEFITING: Saha Global

Abby Ismail

THE STORY:

Hi everyone! My name is Abby Ismail and I'm a student at Worcester Polytechnic Institute studying Civil Engineering.

I was recently accepted as a Field Representative for Saha Global, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that partners with rural communities in developing countries to establish sustainable social businesses that provide basic services, like water and electricity.

These businesses are owned and operated by women in the communities that they serve. The capital necessary to establish these businesses is generated from fundraising activities (like this one!). Once operational, all of the profit from the business remains within the community.

100% of the 76 water and solar businesses created by Saha Global in the past are still in operation and completely run by local entrepreneurs in the community.

This June, I will be traveling to a Northern Ghana to set up a water business in a village that currently lacks access to safe, clean water. We will be training community-appointed women to treat the water they collect using alum and chlorine tablets. Women entrepreneurs will then sell the water for a nominal fee to their friends and neighbors. It's a WIN-WIN!

Did you know?

HALF of the population of Ghana lacks access to clean drinking water People are CURRENTLY drinking fecally contaminated water

The funds raised by myself and other Field Representatives will go directly towards the start-up cost of a village’s new business. This includes equipment for the business, such as large drums to hold the water, chlorine tablets, taps, etc., as well as a safe storage container for each household in the community to prevent recontamination.

Any donation, like, or share is greatly appreciated! Thank you! Since Saha Global is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, all donations are tax-deductible.
